If memory serves, the first TFP debate was sold out at a venue that held 1600 people. This one had an attendance of 700 in a venue that held (?) people, and they didn’t use the words “sold out” in the article. Am I missing something, or was debate #2 not as successful as debate #1 ? Just asking.

Thanks to Free Press and FIRE. I'm glad I attended.

One, I hope, constructive criticism: after the debaters gave their opening statements Bari gave each 2 minutes for comments. First was Ann Coulter who ran over her time. (They all did to some extent). Nick Gillespie was next. He was interrupted after a few comments and was really never given his time before moving on to others. I hope Bari holds the reins tighter next time.

Your question suggests that success is measured by ticket sales. Can we agree that the subject is worth debating no matter how many people are there in person? I live local but was unable to go. I will absolutely be watching it when it is released online.

Great stuff!

Just remember, no matter what you read in the pages of The Free Press, no matter how bad it might seem, no matter how dysfunctional the policies or the practices... vote blue, no matter who...

Because as we all know, Trump is worse. He said mean things to people...
